It’s Personal

Something that has been noticeable for a long time now is that the Left is in a perpetual state of rage. The smallest things send them into spasms of anger. They hate Trump and they really hate his voters. They will go rummaging around in the social media history of people, looking for reasons to hate them. It’s not a general all-encompassing hate, like hating the fans of a rival sports team, but a very personal and cruel hate. They want the victim to suffer and they want to enjoy his suffering.

One reason for this, obviously, is that many people attracted to the Left are mentally unstable, so their politics are just a vehicle for their pathology. Many of the Antifa people, for example, have no coherent political thoughts. They just like being crazy on the streets and causing mayhem. This is the type of person who was attracted to the riots that used to follow the big economic summits. There was never any purpose to their rampages, other than the thrill of smashing things and causing mayhem.

Another more important reason for the rage is the nature of leftist politics in our post-national age. Being on the Left no longer means joining a group that has a tangible enemy, against whom the group throws themselves. The days of unionist, socialists and communists operating as collectives are gone. Even the post-modern movements like climate change and sexual politics is atomized. Much of it is backed by the sorts of people the Left used to oppose like rich people and business.

Lacking an organized enemy and a transcendent reason to formally organize, left-wing politics is highly personal now. No one is committing to a cause bigger than themselves, as their self is the most important thing in their life. It’s why the pronoun stuff is such a thing for these people. There is not much more personal than how the world will refer to you in terms of sex. This intense focus on how the world must perceive them is the root of their politics now. The issues are just vehicles for self-expression.

This is not something anyone is trying to hide. This essay by one of the organizers of the climate activist group Extinction Rebellion explicitly makes this point. He’s not really concerned about the climate. He concedes that there is nothing to be done that is going to change what’s coming. The purpose of his activism is to normalize himself and his sense of self. It’s all about him forcing you to listen to his story and then accepting it and him as something other than strange.

The idea of the personal being the political is not new. The phrase comes from an essay by feminist Carol Hanisch in the 1960’s. The idea is that personal experience is intertwined with larger social and political structures. One’s personal choices reveal one’s politics. Consequently, one should make personal choices that are consistent with one’s politics. The political person should live the life they advocate, so that means not doing business or associating with the wrong people.

Today, this has moved from simply not buying stuff from a business owned by a bad thinker to committing one’s life to destroying the bad thinker and anyone foolish enough to not share the same hatred. The whole woke movement is a blood lust, an effort to cause real harm to people by denying them the ability to live. Climate activism, as expressed in that essay, is about destruction. Everything the writer sees as keeping him from reaching personal fulfillment must be destroyed.

It is not a politics of self-interest, as the so-called conservative would imagine. The modern leftist is like a bear protecting her cubs. Any perceived threat is met with overwhelming aggression. You see it in the language. They conflate ideas and statements with actions. Holding a contrary opinion makes them feel unsafe, as that opinion is viewed as violence. They need safe spaces, by which they mean the removal of anything and anyone that contradicts their sense of self.

This is the real cause of what is behind the social media purges. From the perspective of a radical, everything in their space is theirs and an extension of their self. When a contrary opinion, or even an oblique reference to one, shows up in their twitter timeline, it feels like a home invasion to them. Those women posting about how they are literally shaking or sobbing because their favorite cable show had a bad person as a guest are not exaggerating. They were physically effected by the experience.

It’s an important thing the alt-right got wrong about their on-line activities. They still assume the reason they get thrown off these platforms is because their ideas are so powerful. In reality, their ideas are meaningless. The reason they are removed from the platforms is the same reason one would kill a snake. It’s not that the snake poses a threat to the ecosystem. It is that the snake is a personal threat. The person kills the snake because they can’t feel safe until they know it is dead.

The ultimate cause of this highly personal radicalism is the same thing that is driving dissident politics. The dehumanization, that is the result of post-national liberal order, is creating a growing number of people looking for something to fill the void left by community, identity and culture. For some, it means a deep dive into their own psyche where they live hiding behind the sandbags of their own peculiar traits. For others it means a search for community and fraternity.

The sorts of people drawn into the politics of self are not new to humanity. These people are not the victims of a new pathogen or chemical contamination. It’s just that in the past, our societies had evolved cultural and institutional ways of channeling these people into defined roles. The obliteration of community by global capital and the destruction of culture through multiculturalism has destroyed everything that gives meaning and purpose to life. That’s why they are so angry.

To deny the tenets of progressivism is to attack their religious system. The average leftist is as intractable and unreasonable as a Kentucky King James Only Primitive Baptist. So sure, it is deeply personal to them because arguing with them is tantamount to heresy. The only difference so far is that, for now, the Left can’t literally burn people at the stake but that day may be coming soon. We aren’t going to convert the Left to our side because we have facts and better arguments, just like you can’t convince any other fundamentalist zealot.

In the immediate term, the Deus Vult sorts are live and let live or maybe they’ll let Jehova sort it out. Long term? I’m not so sure. History is always bloody. The kind of tolerance where moral men, non religious, righteous pagan or monotheist can be around each other with killing is rare. If our people end up tasting blood, getting that thing of great value back is unlikely. Those of us who are moral but care little for Christianity and its trappings need some caution and have little incentive as of yet to help restore Christendom. Caveat though, if… Read more »

The apostles were hunted down by an agent of Abraham the Lucifer. That fed, using scripts written for him by his clerks, went on to claim primacy of the movement led by the Christ’s brother and common-law wife, James and Mary Magdalene.

The Christ and his people were trying to STOP the rise of Abraham the Lucifer’s faction, the faction devoted to bringing the Bloody Messiah.

So odd- Eusebius, “the Liar”, switched his religious-political affiliation, then went on to compile the NT through trickery and intimidation.
Most of the NT is… letters by who?

The NT became the official doctrine of the State. The Magic Paper, which must not be questioned, yet is constantly “interpreted”.

In the last TDS episode they were talking about setting up LLCs. Attracting capital and then using it to get power. To paraphrase: the weakness of the neoliberal system is that it can be bought. Raising capital is a must. But since few of us have much capital, it’s a good idea to also form communities not just of like-minded people, but of skilled people. Pretend it’s the apocalypse: find the guy who is like-minded AND has a skill to contribute to keep the community going.

One of the annoying features of LLCs (in my day job context) is the ability to obscure their ownership. Bug by day, feature by night. States & countries vary but it’s widespread enough to have gummed up some high profile cases like the Panama Papers. As to “no need to create a false persona,” none of us should be too quick to shed our anonymity. Anyone openly rolling under their real name is a security threat to his DR community.

All that matters now is skills and community. Anything that hampers that (ideology, drama, insistence on online presence) needs to be tamped down hard. In many cases, we need to sort for skills and attitude before any ideological priors. If they aren’t Antifa and can do/learn a valuable skill, they’re fair game for a community building project. Being engrossed in the political soup is a negative, not a positive.

I agree with the caveat that this kind of “ecumenical outreach” is for our outward-facing communities. Core communities that are more permanent (and thus more vulnerable to doxxing, lawfare etc) and where kids are the focus need to be more insulated from recruits and other potential unreliables. These new proto-homelands are for guys who are down with the whole program & have been well-vetted over time. I also think we need to develop the ability to pick up and move on short notice, scattering or relocating our people as a group, like pre-medieval Germans, Our Special Friends and Gypsies.

It is true that many of the most vocal opponents of a movement are former members. When people who were committed move from one religious system to another, it is common for them to spend a lot of time publicly denouncing their former faith. I think it helps to confirm in their own mind their decision.

That’s part of it. More so it’s a matter of venting the criticisms you couldn’t or wouldn’t voice when you were a loyalist.

You still hold back when you’re inside the circle, but once you repudiate them, you can finally say what’s been eating you for awhile.

The zealots, IMHO, have to be mobilized at least initially to enable the leaders to seize power. But once in power, many of the zealots can be liquidated and the most power hungry and ambitious men can take over and/or the leaders can finally show their true colors. This latter group – the ones that ultimately lead – need not be so devoted to the religious tenets of their cause ; the acquisition and maintenance of power now becomes the predominating factor in their decision making.

I hope she gets into med school. Before I taught in the public high schools, Mathematics, I taught in good private schools. I fear for our science and engineering capabilities in this country. I was one of the few who always raised questions about the system, but was always told to shut up and restrict my comments and energy only “towards what we could conceivably control.” But we could not control anything, especially transmitting knowledge, when the system denied exactly that.

White supremacy is just a fact. Because when you are sweating profusely, thank Mr. Carrier, a white man. When you are sick and need treatment, thank white men who developed cures. When you take a dump and you don’t have to coexist with it, thank white men who developed sanitation. I could go on and on, and I did with my recently graduated from college son, who although he’s economically conservative, held a bit of social liberalism and scoffed at the distinctions among races. So, when I started telling him exactly how white men have made life better, he became… Read more »

This essay brings to mind how ineffective conservatism is in opposing leftist ideas. Instead of zeroing in on the lust for power and revenge which drives radical groups, and stopping it, conservatives are always taking lefty’s demands at face value. Naturally, the Overton Window keeps shifting while gullible conservatives run around attempting to be “fair” to emotionally damaged people. Silly fools like Rich Lowry pursue lofty ideals like justice and equality while their sly leftist opponents are pursuing power for its own sake in order to humiliate perceived enemies.

Part of why I like pushing long-term strategy is the hope that this mess follows the French Revo arc & devours itself. Even the Reds only lasted 3 generations or so and from Nixon to Reagan they looked like they’d be permanent. Reading dystopian fiction from the 1980’s is so weird now because they just vanished from any possible future. Clarke’s “2010” is a clunker in that respect and I loved that series.

Booby, it’s never “over”. If the USSR could implode 70 years after the great revolution—including 30 years of the absolute dictatorship, implementation, and enforcement of Stalin, the Leftist revolution in the USA will never be secure. I agree, that enemies being discovered/created, does energize the Leftists. But eventually, the people’s patience/credibility wears thin as it has in all such “utopias”. No one buys the bullshit at some point and it all comes tumbling down. The only question is how long can the people be fooled. In that, the USSR had a comparison system to look at, the USA. Such was… Read more »

The (((Leftists))) in Russia ruled over Russians, and so sooner or later the Russians weren’t having it any longer. Here in America things are different. The Leftists have no intention of ruling over Americans (which is to say, White people; only Whites are Americans). They wish to destroy Americans, at first through immigration, dilution, mongrelization, diminished fertility, and cultural and societal degradation. They’ll get around to flat-out murder when the numbers make it feasible. The Leftists intend to rule over the foreigners they’ve brought to replace us. At first it will be easy, because the new country is so much… Read more »

We’re being dispossessed by a multi-front cultural and political swarm attack that’s taken 150 years to play out so far. If you have any quicker solutions, we’re all ears.

Compsci By “over” the Booby means the fight for control of the state. It’s over. The left won when it seized control of the universities. Those who oppose the left have to change tactics. It’s not a democratic competition between alternative views, it’s overthrowing the dictators who have taken over. We’re underground now. The Booby doesn’t advocate a violent revolt, not because the Booby’s a pacifist, he’s not. Violence is what the left wants us to do because it gives them the excuse to send in the police and military, and yes, the media will cheer them on, and so… Read more »

“The obliteration of community by global capital and the destruction of culture through multiculturalism has destroyed everything that gives meaning and purpose to life.”

And look at how easily it was accomplished.

Eons to build a civilization. 2 or 3 centuries to plant the seeds to weaken it. A handful if decades to finally obliterate what 1000 generations had painstakingly created.

We are either ruled by an ancient adaptive throne and alter that embraces our past to chart our future…or we are rules by the untethered worst of our kind in league with parasitic malignant outsiders.

Nice post about the eternal struggle we all have in making sense of the world. A wise man can move inward to contemplate his standing and look outward to see his connection to his environment. A wise man can make corrections to his identity when that identity does not work for him anymore. A wise man can see the nuance of an argument and understand that language has limitations. A blind man looks inward for answers and stays there, unconscious to the world around him. A blind man reinforces his tortured identity in an attempt for relief. A blind sees… Read more »

“Community” is a strong talking point. Building an actual community is tricky. History says the strongest communities are religion-based. Jewish, Asian, and Muslim communities are obvious confirmation. As the Christians lost their religion, they also lost their community.

Tom tried to blend Believers and respectful non-Believers with the Declaration. That might be a starting point.

Division over religion is self-destructive for all factions in Our Thing.

Christians will be Voodeo-Christianized in a White-minority nation, Pagans don’t have the raw numbers and based atheists don’t have “die for my beliefs” guys in numbers – most can be bought off b/c no future to worry over once I die.

An ethno-state can incorporate religious pluralism if the religions render unto Caesar. Curb proselytization & expel those who insist on theocracy.

In three words that is how I describe the modern day left.
Along with racial and ethnic intrests that oppose Christian Western Civilization tag along for the ride.

But at the end of the day as someone here said we are to burned at the stake if we oppose this religion as it marches to power.

True communists and leftists (hyenas, not Scar) believe that we just need the right evironment and utopia will be achieved almost instantaneously. We represent not just a mere obstacle but a force that will stop their vision from becoming reality.

They react similar to how Christians would react if simply being an atheist would actually kill God.

“Holding a contrary opinion makes them feel unsafe, as that opinion is viewed as violence. They need safe spaces, by which they mean the removal of anything and anyone that contradicts their sense of self.” One nit to pick here. –Some– of them are this soft and limp, true. Others have learned that using keywords like ‘unsafe & violence’ for things like speech sets off alarm triggers in our ‘helicopter mommy nanny state’ we currently live in. This will bring the schoolmarms rushing to your aid backed by enforcers and ultimately enforcers with firearms. I’ve lived this reality. An off… Read more »

We see exactly what you’re talking about with the journalism “students” at Northwestern. And their peers in the student body who want a free hand to commit political violence without police interference. There are some truly disturbing psychological undercurrents now laid bare on the surface of American public and social life. They’re right out in the open for all to see, now. (Many won’t look. Yet. Eventually, they’ll be forced to.)

But realize this, that in the last days difficult times will come. For men will be lovers of self, lovers of money, boastful, arrogant, revilers, disobedient to parents, ungrateful, unholy, unloving, irreconcilable, malicious gossips, without self-control, brutal, haters of good, treacherous, reckless, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, holding to a form of godliness, although they have denied its power; Avoid such men as these.

Here’s the paradox. If someone like that XR freak is worthy of despite, my own anger and loathing drives the zeitgeist that is crushing individuals in the rising purity spirals. The answer to the paradox is simple, but difficult. I refuse to react emotionally to ideas, no matter how inane or outrageous. As Zman has repeatedly tried to make clear, we have already lost the culture war: the ideas championed by globohomo are never going to support or nurture us. But neither are they likely to truly injure us as long as they remain mere emotional outbursts. The mantra of… Read more »

The driving force of this behavior is rampant narcissism, which epidemic among adherents of the ‘progressive’ Left. The narcissist cannot abide any experience that questions their ‘excellence’ and entitlement. Since narcissists are often sadistic in their defense mechanisms (‘gaslighting’ being a common tactic), it stands to reason that they would seek to destroy that which ‘threatens’ their sense of being the center of the universe and always being right.

This may or may not be true but at the end of the day, the left seems feminine hysterical to me. The left seems to me to represent the complete collapse of masculine values. No choice but to reassert those values.

“The dehumanization, that is the result of post-national liberal order, is creating a growing number of people looking for something to fill the void left by community, identity and culture.” This is the heart of the matter. Well said and intuited. Maybe that’s our key, as many others here have stated about building communities. If traditional organizations on the right have pozzed themselves into oblivion or at least made themselves ripe for harvesting by the skin-dancers… then the Progressives are plagued with an inability to maintain a coherent organization without atomizing.

Another thought: This is an extreme example of what happens when children are brought up fatherless. I would bet that 99% of these modern snowflake far leftists had no father around or else saw their fathers very little, or at least one or two standard deviations higher than the average. Broken home children. Divorces. Dad and mom never married. Feminist mothers. Etc. So many children brought together, combined with mothering protection, created men too afraid of their masculinity to have ever engaged it and women who have no knowledge of how to deal with male anger and aggression besides crying… Read more »

except that those who claimed “POC” went to the opposite extreme, proving that if there was no Daddy, they would be Daddy, and no Mommy (of either sex or any level of authority or kindness) would tell them any differently. So the ones you mentioned joined together with the new “Daddies” of the culture, aligning with and hiding behind them, which is why “It’s okay to be white” is NOT okay to say, think, or feel.

“One reason for this, obviously, is that many people attracted to the Left are mentally unstable, so their politics are just a vehicle for their pathology.” Agreed. But why do we have so many more bat-shit crazy people? I offer than the falling away from belief in God, the Christian God, left people willing to believe in any damned thing. And they do believe in things of the damned. Call me crazy if you want but I think we are seeing Lucifer’s grand plan unfolding around us. —— PS: I am using Firefox with success today. Weird.

My hypothesis is that these folks assume they occupy the higher moral ground, therefore anything you do or say is irrelevant, and everything they do is justified and morally correct. They see conservatives or people to the right of them politically as Hitler incarnate himself. Since they occupy the moral high ground, they don’t tolerate arguments or anything you say even in if one uses logic, rationale, or facts to explain your view – all they hear/see is that you are Hitler incarnate. With that perspective, they really don’t care what you say, what your argument is, or what perspective… Read more »

I think of it as the Feminization of Politics and Social Interactions. It’s an extension of the female way of dealing with dissidents: You completely DESTROY them. I’m not kidding. Women don’t just try to best another. They gather their supporters for an all-out assault on the individual, using tag-teams, group attacks, and utilizing tactics such as gossip, innuendo, cutting off their enemy from ANY interaction with ANY member of the group (which is enforced by treating any dissenter to the same brutal treatment). Women have NO mercy. The concept of a truce, or a negotiated peace is beyond them.… Read more »
